For the final time in the 2020-21 season, the Oklahoma City Thunder will take the floor inside the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Though the results fell apart after the NBA Trade Deadline as the number of available Thunder players waned, Oklahoma City General Manager Sam Presti will hope his young core saw enough meaningful action this season to continue their development and prepare them for years to come.
In the season finale, Oklahoma City is not in the playoff hunt. But the result could still have ramifications on the future.
A loss will ensure that the Thunder can do no worse than a tie for the third best lottery odds in the 2021 Draft. If the Orlando Magic win against the Philadelphia 76ers, an OKC loss will clinch sole possession of the third worst odds.
The Clippers however can clinch the 3-seed in the Western Confernece if they emerge victorious and the Denver Nuggets fall on the road at the Portland Trail Blazers.
With playoff seeding on the line, the Clippers will be close to full strength when they clash with the Thunder on Sunday night.
